StreamlinePlot example 2

How to create line-drawn streamline arrows and use some basic StreamlinePlot resources

This example can be created using HLU C library calls, HLU FORTRAN library calls, or NCL. It demonstrates how to tweak StreamlinePlot resources using a resource file. The names of the source files for this example are st02c.c, st02f.f, and st02n.ncl.


This module discusses how to create this plot using HLU function calls or NCL. A resource file is included with this example, and it is called st02.res. This file is used to change the default resource settings for the plot.

A detailed discussion of how this example works appears in its source code.

Creating the plot using HLUs

The HLU C program that generates this plot is called st02c.c.

Creating the plot using HLU FORTRAN library calls

The HLU FORTRAN program that generates this plot is called st02f.f.

Creating the plot using NCL

The NCL script that generates this plot is called st02n.ncl.

The data

The data for this plot are created by calls within the HLU program or NCL script.

How to run this example

This example can be created using a C program (st02c.c), a FORTRAN program (st02f.f), or an NCL script (st02n.ncl). The examples are installed in the following locations:

The resource file for this example is located in:

You can copy this example and run it by typing "ng4ex st02c", "ng4ex st02f", or "ng4ex st02n". A copy of the source file and resource file will be placed in your current working directory. The source code will be compiled and automatically run for you.
